Book launch marks pensions anniversary

A new book marking the anniversary of the first payment of the state pension was launched at Staple Inn on 26 January.

The book, 100 Years of State Pension — Learning from the Past, was written by Tony Salter, Andrew Bryans, Colin Redman and Martin Hewitt. It provides a timely and informative history of pensions policy, and outlines the financial, demographic and social issues that have influenced state pension legislation and policy development.

A presentation and discussion around the issues raised in the book will take place on 16 March at the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh. There is no formal registration for this event, which will be followed by a drinks reception.

For more details about the event, please contact andrea.tsarbos@actuaries.org.uk. To order a copy of the book, £16.95 + p&p, please contact publications@actuaries.org.uk
